Stephan Baumann just finished his project Urban Sync. Check it out the great project blog. Stephan has been working on interesting mobile projects for a while and our paths have crossed several times.
He has been working on bluetuna with Arianna Bassolli and presented the project at the Mobile Music Workshop in 2006.
Stephan also participated in the Sonic Interaction Design workshop I organised with Lalya Gaye and Karmen Franinovic at ICAD at Ircam earlier this year.
Urban Sync by Stephan Bauman was one of those Sonic Interaction Design (SID) Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) I keep advertising on this blog. Great to see more mobile work in the SID community! Hope this inspires more of you to apply!
This is from his blog:
Urban Sync aims at finding the correlates which define personal well-being in an urban context. Since we live our lifes meanwhile in a world augmented by technical artefacts, the boundaries seem to blur between being always-on or completely-off.

New call for works

Phonurgia Nova awards 2008
deadline :15 october
The Loud-speaker is probably the greatest common denominator in all our lives to-day. Video, multimedia, car radios, mobile phones are all crafting a new life for sound. In all domains sound is an objet of research, of reflexion.
It is essential to open up creative, imaginative spaces for sound.
And to encourage people to listen.
Christian Leblé, chairman.
Among the prizes awarded for radio art and acoustic creation, the Phonurgia Nova competition has, since 1986, occupied a special place by virtue of its recognition of artists whose work exploits sound as a medium for expressing the real and the imaginary. The contest is open to all radio station formats and to all authors, independant radio producers, musicians, composers, sound artists and production teams. An international jury panel made up of representatives from the radio industry, the press and the sound art world judge the entries. In 2007, 152 productions from 15 different countries were entered in the prize.
#02 Call for Works
This year’s competition will distinguish authors whose work manifests a keen sense of sound and listening as means of expression.
The jury will deliberate on two areas :
++ Radio Arts will privilige all forms of inventive radiophonic creation (documentary, feature, fiction, essays, Hörspiel, experimental forms etc.)
++ Inter Media awards will go to sound installations or works which have been specially created for “inter media environment” to bring new experiences in sound to listeners.
In each category the jury will deliberate on two types of work :
